As the Executive Director of Cool Culture, an incredible organization that ensures that all families and children, regardless of income, have access to art and culture, I'm very excited to announce that we are once again holding our annual GIVE TO GET event on #GivingTuesday! This event will be held on Tuesday, November 27, from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM at Phillips Auction House, and will be an evening filled with dancing, food, live art making, and an open bar at Phillips—one of New York City's most renown auction houses.
By purchasing your tickets today, you'll join a group of artists and other taste-makers committed to raising the funds that make it possible for over 50,000 NYC families from historically marginalized communities to have free and unlimited access to 90 cultural institutions (museums, zoos and gardens) yearly.
Now more than ever, when marginalized families and children are in need of safe spaces like museums, botanical gardens and zoos, where they can enjoy quality family time, I truly hope you will join me in supporting Cool Culture's important work! If you can't make it on November 27th, please know that every donation makes a big difference.

GIVE TO GET takes place on #GivingTuesday — a global day of giving fueled by the power of social media and collaboration. Celebrated on the Tuesday following Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday, #GivingTuesday kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
